Discovering Synagogues: Here and There, Then and Now

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 — 7:00 pm
Prosserman JCC, 4588 Bathurst Street, Toronto

Event Link:

Sara Ferdman Tauben’s new book, Traces of the Past: Montreal’s Early Synagogues, uncovers the architectural traces of a culture and features photographs by David Kaufman of the remnants of the buildings that once housed these synagogues. Reflecting the debates that previously went into building synagogues in Europe, the history of Montreal’s shuln is a vibrant example of the immigrant story.

Sara will share details from her investigation through archives, interviews and pavement pounding. David will speak about his work uncovering forgotten spaces and photographing Jewish places in Montreal, Toronto and Poland.

The presentation will be followed by a reception featuring light refreshments and a book signing.

Presented by the Centre for Dynamic Learning at the Prosserman JCC
